double note one is sharp

i'm relearning the piano after 20 years with beethoven's moonlight sonata. i've encountered a note printed twice and one is sharp and the other is not. how do i play this? do i play 2 keys? the regular note and the sharp?

can you give a pic of it? are they above each other or side by side?
if above-then yes play both at the same time harmonicaly
if side by side-then play one after the other melodically

as you can tell, i'm new to this sight, so i'll try to send a picture ...

no, i can't. i can e-mail it to you ...
the notes are the same, let's say a b and a b sharp, side by side. i have so many questions, what does a little "x" to the left a note mean?

if theyre side by side, then play one then the other with the correct timing like
---------------
---------------
----o--#o---------
---------------
---------------
if thats the case play the B then the B#

the "X" next to a note means its double sharped, if you have this then it means to take the original note and add a whole step to it
so if you have a Ax then it really means to play a B , thats the trickery of enharminoc values
any more Q's just ask

hey guitar demon, i've been wondering this and you just reminded me to ask, what is the point of a double sharped note? why don't they just make it a B instead of Ax?

because for some instances you need an A value so you would need the double sharp like....

say your in the C# scale and you have a p5 interval
------------------
------------------
------------------
--#o--------------
------------------
--#o--
(^ledger line...)

so you have C# to G#
but now you want to make that an augmented 5, you have to take that G# and raise it another half step AND you have to keep the G note value so you must go up to a Gx

make sence?

have you actually seen that? I have never seen that, and from what i Know its not possable....

you sure it wasnt this?
l
l____
l____l

this meens its a natural note, so if you were in the key of Bb and you wanted a natural B (just a normal B) then you would throw that symbol in front of it.

#bA???

im at a loss for words, cause they would cancel eachother out and you would be left with just an "A" note...
maybe powersofterror can enlighten us...

Ahhh, Demon's right there's no such thing as that. If there is a sharp and a flat together- in front of- the same chord, then that sharp and flat are refering to different notes in the chord. For ex., I assume that the flat and the sharp are not on the same line or space?

they're actually side by side. the one in front is 1/8 note and the second on the same line is a 1/4 and on that same line is a flat and sharp symbol. i can't figure it out!
